"While thousands of Michael Jackson fans have flocked to movie theaters to see the limited-run engagement of his "This Is It" concert film, several of his family members, including sisters Janet and LaToya, have yet to see the flick. However, LaToya said she's comforted by the support the family has received in the wake of Michael's death this past summer.
I didn't see the movie yet," she told MTV News on the red carpet of the Us Weekly "Hot Hollywood" event in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. "I'm not ready to see it just yet. It's a bit too much for me right now."
But she did elaborate on the fan response to the film, which has grossed more than $200 million across the globe.
"Well, you know, it's so interesting that he is so loved by everyone in the world," she said. "You just enjoy the fact that people love him so much just in every country. And the things that you read and hear, it makes you feel good inside to know he was your brother and that people loved him that much."
The outpouring of love, however, comes at a very bittersweet time for the Jackson family, since Michael isn't around to see it all for himself.
"I just wish that he could have been here to see it," she said. "I think it's compounded a bit more now that he's not here. I know he's watching."
